Kenya Kite surf Cup

Diani’s action-packed, 3-day long, freestyle kite surfing competition is back! Organised by H20 Extreme and hosted by Nomad, it is the perfect way to help beat the January Blues.

Professional and amateur competitors will perform freestyle movements before a panel of judges who will allocate points based on difficulty, fluidity, style of trick and kite position before the final manoeuvre. If you’d rather sit this one out, why not indulge in a relaxed weekend, watching colourful kite surfing scenes unfold on Africa’s number 1 beach? You can also browse through a range of craft stalls selling locally made products, including clothes and jewellery, and hit the dance floor at a Hawaiian-themed after-party.

Don’t forget to buy your raffle tickets for the chance to win some fantastic prizes in support of the local Diani Turtle Watch.
